SCSM 2012: Asset Management Part 4 – Authoring Forms

SystemCenterTipps

This is the fourth part of the blog series about my Asset Management solution for SCSM 2012 R2.

Part 1: General overview
Part 2: Authoring – Classes and Relationships
Part 3: Folders and Views
Part 5: Reports
Part 6: Runbook/Automation details

This part of the series covers the forms created with Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition (incl. VSAE).

Each object which has a view in the solution also needs a form to enter values and a preview form (OneWay).

The forms are based on the WPF User Control library (requires .Net 3.5).

All forms and resources required for the forms are defined in the AssetManagementForms Assembly, which is referenced in the AssetManagement management pack in the References area and in the Forms.mpx.

Forms.mpx:

Each form needs to be listed here (standard and preview). The targeted TypeProjection defines which classes will be referenced in the form.

<Form ID=”AssetManagementForms.Computer” Assembly=”AssetManagementForms.Assembly” Accessibility=”Public” Target=”ComputerAsset.Form.TypeProjection” TypeName=”AssetManagementForms.Computer”>
<Category>Form</Category>
</Form>
